twelve days of christmas: day one.

There are only a few days left until Christmas! I am so excited! You have no idea. 
It is my favorite holiday {followed up by St. Patrick's Day} and I try to celebrate it in every way possible, so get prepared for holiday blog posts, pictures, and little changes on my blog!

I want to do 12 days of Christmas and I had 2 great ideas. The first was to honor 12 wonderful people in my life that deserve my appreciation and admiration more than anything. The second was to have something fun each day that you can either bake, make, or take!

So here we go!

Today, I would like to show special appreciation to my good friend Betsy Gettis. She has been a role model and inspiration, as well as a good friend and a loving sister to my boyfriend, Mark. 

Her blog, Heaven's To Betsy, is practically perfect and you need to pay it a visit! She has been one of my friends for a few years and I never once felt as if it wasn't meant to be. We co-lead the small group for 7th grade girls at my church and last night we had a fantastic little holiday pasty at her house where we made crafts, ate junk food (shh!), and enjoyed one another's company.

i made gift tags for presents.

i also made these coasters.


What a great time :)

So, Betsy let me thank you for your friendship and for being a fabulous role model for me {whether or not you knew}. I am so excited for this Christmas and I hope you are blessed and spend time with the ones you love and make many memories!




And now for your freebie!!
Day one of gifts:

Enjoy your gift, and check back tomorrow for day 2*
